    What's the best way to package up Bare Block for shipping?

    I shipped a block like this once. Somehow Fedex managed to crack the corner off the block. I used a Rubbermaid container with cardboard around it. Fedex would not insure it. Take a ton of before pictures showing the packing material just incase.

    30something Men's Style/Fashion

    Nice pairs of jeans and a plain v-neck shirt, with either nice boots (red wings or eccos) or sneakers (shox or diesels). This is what I wear on a daily basis. I buy everything on express men. When its cold I wear the same but throw a 1/4 zip pull-over on, whether its an athletic type or a...

    ECMlink Fisrt drive after 4 years need help on base tune till I get to the dyno next year.

    At a quick glance, it looks like you need to set your deadtime for your injectors. Do that and upload an idle log at operating temp.

    Just may have screwed myself...

    In NY I had no issues with readiness monitors and dsmlink. In fact, I think I had reset them all just before bringing it for inspection. I had all CEL boxes unchecked as well for inspection to ensure it wouldn't randomly pop up and cause an issue. I actually had a similar situation where my 10...

    DSMLink and other random questions, help!

    I just passed NYS inspection two weekends ago, you can set ECM Link to ignore the codes. Even though on link it stated that the readiness of the sensors (rear 02 & cat) was incomplete, it still passed the inspection machine no problem. The only issue I had was passing the visual inspection...

    Seriously need help..

    We need a log when the car is at operating temp. TPS adjustment is -11, you should start by trying to get that closer to zero.

    98 Eagle Talon - "Onyx"

    ECMlink Cruise Log before I start WOT tuning

    It is slightly lean at idle, but the cruise afr is nice and steady around stoich. I think I'm going to try and play around with low hertz sliders and deadtime to get it smoother. The logged wideband is off by about 0.2.

    ECMlink Cruise Log before I start WOT tuning

    Wanted someone to give it a quick look over before I start WOT tuning. I am slowly learning the tuning process on my own from countless hours of reading and looking at threads others have posted. It doesn't seem completely smooth while slowly accelerating. Would adjusting my airflow per rev down...

    ECMlink Idle log advice

    TPS adjustment is -12, that seems like a lot to me. You need to adjust airflowperrev to around .25. Once you get that you can adjust deadtime to straighten out your combined ft, which should be around +/- 5. Your's hits -5 for a millisecond at one point.Are you on SD or stock MAF? MAF type in...

    Why 260hp on 272 with 9:1 comp

    What are you using to tune? what injectors?Profile shows greddy emange and 650s.. My best guess is the one of the two is limiting you.

    Did I blow my turbo?

    Do a boost leak test. You already know your vacuum is less than before. That should be the obvious first thing to do. I couldn't open the video either. Also, make sure you timing is correct.

    Which version of DSMLink do I have?

    Its V2.Obviously for added comfort you can contact the guys at ecmtuning to confirm the serial number. But I am 100% positive its V2.I hope you received the cable with it.

    Help tune with DSMlink V2

    Post a log while trying to start? Do you have any more mods. Make sure you have the proper MAF selected. If you still have the 2g maf make sure it is zero'd out. Injectors and deadtime need to be set according to your injectors.Is it a 95 ecu? That is the only time you'll need to change the...

    Critique my Alignment

    Thanks I will look into. Haven't had a chance to look at it much. The car is not driven too often now that it is winter. I haven't felt like dealing with it yet. I appreciate your help though. And will check back in once I look at it on a warm day.

    DSM Graveyard Head Swap then No Start

    I hate to even think I helped fund these retards when they first started out in 2007ish. What a freaking headache and waste of money, I should have a fully built block for what I paid. I'd be embarrassed selling my car showing a receipt from dsmgraveyard for the short block...blaahh.

    Critique my Alignment

    I believe the car has previously been in an accident. I should do a carfax. But I also believe the guy at sears doing the alignment is incompetent as well. Is that anything in particular I should look for in the front left to try and straighten this problem out (other than the lateral...

    So, I had new tires put on (Eagle GT) and an alignment done as the old tires were shot and the car was out of alignment due to new tie rods and what not over summer. After the alignment, the car still pulls pretty hard to the left. My suspension and handling knowledge is limited. Is my alignment...

    Engine review

    The key to getting people who don't understand engines to buy them is, add the word "Stage" and a number after it. The difference between Stage 1 and Stage 5 could only be rod bolts, but since its "Stage 5" they will pay $1,000 more.

    Engine review

    Depends what you consider bad, I had to run a tap through every hole in my block and blow all sand out of the oil passages. I bought a short block when they first started up. The engine only has about 3,000 miles on it at the moment. Runs fine but seems like it might have piston slap, but...

    Starting issues - No / Doesn't / Won't Start - MERGED

    Whenever I have done a compression test, I make sure the car is at operating temp then pull only one plug at a time. I'm not sure if the one plug at a time makes a difference, but I thought I would pass along how I have done it without any problems.I would first say double check these...

    College budget build help.

    I guess it would be possible if everything was bought used or major discounts. I still do not think it is a realistic goal based on what I have bought and fixed for my car. Rarely does everything go as planned.

    College budget build help.

    I would worry about getting a car and getting it running and driving properly. I don't see how you'll be able to properly build a car to make 500+ hp with 7k. I would assume part of the 7k will be used to purchase the car.
